Creativity Coaching & Workshops

Begin again...

To begin AGAIN… I’ve lost count. But, it's what we do every day when we wake up so it seems organic to apply the concept, without negativity bias, to our creative processes. I have new stuff I want to start… a spark here…  an impossible idea there... and those goodies are often pre-packaged for return shipping with self doubt, comparison, and "what was I thinking!" in the bubble wrap. So what, I'll do it anyway! Begin again.

Does this feel familiar to you? In your heart, in your tummy, in your head, on your sticky notes...

Whatever your joy is, from traditional artistic mediums to cooking, gardening, yoga, crafting, wine making, dance or music… it doesn’t matter, it’s all creative!

Now what… are you worried about creating momentum, thinking it’s silly or you’re not good enough to keep pursuing it?

Do any of these issues strike a chord with your life… procrastination, overwhelm, self-sabotage, fear, perfectionism, doubt, resistance, difficulty making time, no sense of purpose or not knowing how or where to start?

I still experience these challenges, we can't make them go away, but I've found a way to uncover them, acknowledge the pesky stuff and quiet the noise... and I can help you too. KMCC works with small steps and fun, non-linear tools to reignite your creative passions. Trust yourself and take a leap toward reigniting your joy!

You're invited to the world of the Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coaching™! 

Kaizen Muse Creativity Coaching™ is a unique approach to coaching that uses empowering questions, in-session experiences, a non-linear (aka fun!) flow, small steps and wonderful, well-tested tools that honor the creative process and help you to move through common creative blocks. Yes, common! You're not alone in the creative chaos that we put ourselves in. I've been there and I can help you uncover what's stopping you from finding joy with your creative spirit.

Kaizen is an ancient Japanese philosophy used across many industries and programs to create improvement through small steps. It’s just as effective when applied to our hectic modern lives. The Muses are wonderfully playful characters who represent real-life principals that will help you uncover your blocks and access your creativity.

Combining these two powerful dynamics into a gentle, non-linear and fun approach in a KMCC coaching relationship will give you surprising “a-ha” moments, along with the tools and personal experiences you need to bust through your resistance and reignite, or discover, your creative passions.

    “Katherine has an amazing presence that's so creative and authentic, it's a joy to work with her. She's so willing to share her thinking and be vulnerable and trusting as a coach, all the while asking thoughtful questions that help you dig deeper and tap into your intuition and inner knowledge. You can't help but emerge wiser and more centered.” ~ Jennifer Johnson Crow, Artist and Writer

  • Connect to Create in Parallel Universe Time
    Parallel Universe time is just that… a one-hour space that we hold, as a group, for each other, through the magic of Zoom, to focus on our own work during distractible times. You're invited to this incognito creative group (cameras off). Bring something you want to work on and I'll provide a mindful space with a guided relaxation and distraction-free time for you to play. 
    Contact me for Parallel Universe Time, it's free, treat yourself!

    "Katherine, thank you for this morning. I know that I would not have been that productive with that hour had it not been put aside with you!” ~ Susan C, Creative Being

  • Creativity and Muse Workshops
  • Based on the whimsical book by Jill Badonsky – The Modern Day Muses (and the Bodyguard): 10 Guides to Creative Inspiration – these group workshops are a fantastic way to reignite your creativity, open you up to your creative gifts, and work your way through the blocks and issues that hold you back from the joy and purpose that creativity brings. Workshops will resume in early 2023.
